Black Friday

Black Friday and Cyber Monday Preview


It’s that time of year again. While our American friends are indulging in copious amounts of turkey, we Canadians have no distractions in our way while we plan for tomorrow’s Black Friday sales and Monday’s online sales! But sit back and relax, I’ll scope out the best sales for you!

Beauty – Looking for some great beauty deals? This is a great time to start all of your holiday shopping. Urban Decay is a great start, with 20% off everything on their website until the end of Friday the 27th with the code CRUSHED and for Monday the 30th they’re bringing back the Naked Vault II online for only $165. That’s every single Naked palette out there!! Great for gifts, or never go eyeshadow shopping again. Looking for some great new brushes? Sigma has free worldwide shipping on Friday, as well as 20% off sitewide on Monday with code CYBER2015. Smashbox is also 25% off with a $50 purchase online using the code HOLIDAY15. Tarte has 25% off your order with the code FRIDAY. And last but not least, Sephora’s Black Friday $10 door busters. Tons more out there as well! Check out specific brand sites for deals!

Fashion – In need of a good Christmas or New Year outfit? Or just a few fashionable gifts for friends? Check out TopShop’s 50% off 5 day sale on selected lines. H&M is offering great $5 deals and the first 300 people in line will get either $300 or 25% off their purchases. And finally for those looking for something a little more casual, 50% off everything site wide at OldNavy.

Indigo 25% off toys and baby, anywhere from 20-65% off NOMAD portable smartphone tools, and of course the one stop shopping at Walmart has amazing deals and hundreds of dollars of savings.

Where are you planning on shopping this weekend?


The Kate Spade Adelia Bag


I’m well aware of the holiday shopping battle: the desperate desire to shop for yourself albeit the inappropriate timing. It’s a time for buying gifts and wrappings to make the holidays bright for those around you! Don’t worry, hopefully they’ll return the sentiments. But with long-lasting Black Friday sales, and the constant unknown of what gifts (if any) are to come, I couldn’t help myself this holiday season. It’s not everyday you find these deals, am I right?!

It seems that each and every year Black Friday becomes a longer event. Starting as just a single day, Black Friday now seems to span a full week! Oh the gluttony and mass consumerism…..But I seem to get caught up in it too. Which is why I wandered over to the Kate Spade location at the Toronto Outlets, a close-to-home beacon of money spending. Through the pandemonium and crowds I found this little beauty, the Adelia clutch. Regular price of $180, I got this beauty for $80! Steal!

It’s the perfect size for this time of year. Fits my wallet and lipstick and is light and easy to carry for all of those Christmas shopping trips to the mall! No bulky purses to get in the way of arms full of bags and purchases! I love the deep rosy-maroon colour of the bag with the contrast of the lighter pink. It looks great with my black jacket and I’ve been getting many compliments!

Did anyone else find some great Black Friday designer deals?
